I don’t know who’s more surprised in this Star Wars/Omaze video – the fans who think they’re just talking to Omaze employees about possibly winning premiere tickets, only to have Han Solo casually drop in, or me, to see Harrison Ford give a performance in which he sounds loud, engaged and not sleepwalking. And he doesn’t even do his finger-pointy thing.
As for the loyal fans who got semi-pranked – give ’em all a big Han. The movie should maybe be called The FORD awakens, am I right? When it comes to bad puns, how can I keep stooping Solo?
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
